Serial Project: Music and I
[Tribute to Big Band Era]
“It was one of those great spring days, it was Sunday, and you knew summer would be coming soon. And I remember that morning Dorrie and I had gone for a walk in the park and come back to the apartment. We were just sort of sitting around and I put on a record of Louie Armstrong, which was music I grew up with, and it was very, very pretty, and I happened to glance over and I saw Dorrie sitting there. And I remember thinking to myself how terrific she was and how much I loved her. And I don't know, I guess it was a combination of everything, the sound of the music, and the breeze, and how beautiful Dorrie looked to me and for one brief moment everything just seemed to come together perfectly and I felt happy, almost indestructible in a way.”

Title : Mystic Hall
Music Inspiration : Mystic Dance by Keiko Matsui
Intro : Music is the expression of the spirit; mind and soul unite for a dance that speaks more to a human than anything else in the world. It inspires and guides the human heart, it breaks and recomposes, it conquers and lets go.
Every single human can find in their particular taste(s) in music the truth about themselves, the very roots of their spiritual values and the cores of recreation.
Artwork inspiration: coming from three artists whose work I admire - Matteo Quartucci, Joe Prosperi and Tom Schlaiss.
Artist : Laura ( Chxli ) Emerson
Title : Flowing into Nothingness
Musical Inspiration : Esbjörn Svensson Trio’s, “From Gagarin’s Point of View”, whose slow and haunting melody strongly evokes the image of floating in space and watching the transcendental spectacle of our Blue Planet: above and below, abyss and cosmos, self and non-self merge into “another world” where the ego flows into nothingness and silence, stillness and bliss descend upon the soul.”

Title : Free to Fly
Description : I have chosen the song Boats & Birds from Gregory & the Hawk. This is the most soft, beautiful and so powerful song !!! This song brings up memories and feelings never known before by anyone else than yourself… It suits all emotions. It can make me happy, excited, sad.... This song has something magical, it can't be properly described with my words. That is why I paint, and that is why music is made. It is to create a feeling only that person feels and can express it through tools like notes, paint and canvas...
